What You Can Expect

Mt Tamborine National Park 4WD Nocturnal Rainforest and Glow Worm Tour

Mt Tamborine Rainforest Guided Night Tour

Escape the crowds of the Gold Coast and journey inland on this serene evening adventure. After pickup at your Gold Coast hotel in a luxury 4WD vehicle, wind your way up to the summit of Mt Tamborine. Along the way, stop at a lookout for spectacular views of the coastline and ocean awash in the colors of sunset.

Get a taste of Mt Tamborine’s summit scene with a light supper at a local café. Snack on homemade cakes and biscuits served with your choice of tea, cappuccino or steaming hot chocolate.

As light fades from the sky, follow your guide on a nighttime bushwalk through the surrounding subtropical rain forest. Equipped with a low-wattage torch, experience the magic as nocturnal creatures emerge from the darkened forest. Your guide will lead the way with a high-powered LED torch for a better view of native flora and fauna. Veer off a secret path that leads to an enchanting waterfall illuminated by the light of a glowworm colony. Enjoy the silence and serenity of the forest as you admire this natural phenomenon.

After walking back to the 4WD vehicle, relax on the return ride to the Gold Coast, where your tour concludes in the late evening.

Awesome tour. Our driver/guide Luke was very friendly and knowledgable. It was nice to go off the beaten track and see and hear some of the nocturnal noises of the rainforest. Curtis Falls is so beautiful, and so are the glowworms. There weren't as many as I'd hoped, but l came especially to see them and l wasn't disappointed. The complimentary dessert at the restaurant on the way back was very tasty. The whole tour was conducted at a relaxing pace and was very enjoyable.

The tour is amazing because not only the great variety of wild life, but also because of the tourist's jokes. I especially like the cheesecake, just delicious.

Our guide was very friendly. The 4WD was very comfortable and clean. The cake and hot chocolate were very nice. We saw lots of animal on the walk. Moonlight impeded on our view of the glow worm so try to pick days that don't have full moon. It's better to also go after a rain because there are more glow worms with more moisture. Pick up and drop off included with the tour were very convenient.
